Description
For several years, an MIT team led by professor Dina Katabi has been working on a device that can measure a person’s vital signs like heart-rate and breathing without any physical contact, by analyzing the wireless signal in the environment. They’ve employed the system in retirement homes and hospital environments, with the goal of enabling health-care professionals to remotely monitor the sick and the elderly for various health issues, including Parkinson’s and dementia.
